Survitec Purpose Day 2021purpose day

We spent half our working day volunteering in activities that give back to our local communities.



What is purpose day

Between October 11th and October 15th, our colleagues worldwide participated in Survitec Purpose Day. We spent half our working day volunteering in activities that benefited our local communities, from helping food banks to litter picking and more — demonstrating the importance of giving back. We came out in numbers to make a real difference. Below you can see several examples of the activities we participated in and the organisations we supported.

Our teams came together for a greater cause. Providing a sense of purpose and belonging and further uniting us as a One Survitec Team.
